Grilled Brats and Beer ..... Need Something For A Halloween Party Or A Tailgate Party Or How About Just Everyday?

Grilled Brats And Beer
We lived for many years near the Bratwurst Capitol Of the World which is the claim to fame of Bucyrus, Ohio. A large festival is held annually in July with concessions. It is an experience to see and smell the aroma coming from the vendors with their street side stands selling the Bratwurst and the thousands of people gathered for the celebration.
